. joining me now are msnbc political analyst steve schmidt, senior adviser on the mccain '08 campaign and joy reid, nbc contributor. this latest video about him wanting to send president obama as he puts it back to kenya was pulled out today. it's been around. they highlighted it. and then the senator put out a statement saying he doesn't -- his father doesn't speak for him. >> it's so precious when the guy whose son was born in canada does birther jokes. that's adorable. it highlights without the media officially there kind of the way conservatives are talking amongst themselves. and that really is the problem. the problem is even with the 47% video, this was mitt romney being asked by somebody in the audience how can we get those moochers to stop taking our tax money and living on the dole. he answered that question with 47%. the conversations taking place inside the conservative base shows ugliness outwardly. >> steve schmidt, the other thing in that video is a strong sense of superiority. we are superior people to the other people we're talking about, be it the president of the un
with steve kornacki, the infamous steve kornacki. julianna goldman, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart and joining us from washington, d.c., john stanton. john, let me go to you first since you're in d.c. right now the senate is holding a vote or about to hold a vote on the toomey amendment which will broaden carveouts to corporations who might not feel okay with lgtb employees and just not want to abide by this nonstrip nation act. what do you see for the future of this bill? does it stand any hope in the house. >> the hope amongert spokers of the bill is that by including these kind of exemptions they can bring enough republicans in the senate they can have a big vogt vote and bring parish to the speaker. unequivocal speaker has said will not support the bill, encourage lawsuits, move it further to the right to placate him. it will be difficult for supporters of the bill to get republicans to go for it at this point. >> steve, what john said the speaker thinks it's going to increase frivolous legislation. they have done studies where there are discrimination in place and onl

of the christie record. and joining us now, karen finney, host of "disrupt with karen finney" and steve kre naki. christie has this reputation he developed in the media as this moderate. is he really as moderate as people are portraying him? >> no. and that's the thing. i think when you look at what republicans and really conservative republicans will be asked to swallow with chris christie in 2016, it's not as much of a leap in terms of all of the major boxes you need to check off to sort of be a republican today. like abortion, you look at guns, issues like this. he actually checks off all those boxes. i think back to rudy guiliani and the run up to 2008 and the whole story was can this new york city liberal republican win over the republicans nationally. that was a real leap for republicans. i think there is a reputation with christie as a moderate that's been very beneficial to him politically. and would be very beneficial to him politically in a general election. but i think he is a lot more sellable to the republican base than people realize. >> much more conservative. and i want to look o

and former kerry campaign manager steve elmendorf and former press secretary rich galen. it's so interesting if you compare christie's views to ken cuccinelli's, they're almost identical. is his decisive victory a sign that pragmatism trumps ideology? >> i think ken cuccinelli was a lot more extreme than chris christie or at least vocalized his extremism. the test for chris christie is when he runs for president in a state like iowa or south carolina with a republican electorate, can he take this show on the road and i think the jury is out on that. >> the former rnc chairman says chris christie is leading a republican resurgent and said, quote, he's proved that a conservative republican can get votes from hispanics and african-americans, that a pro-life governor can get votes from women. this means that those voters are available to us, that we're not shut out demographically or gee graphically, that it's worth the effort. is that wishful thinking? chris christie is kind of a singular guy, don't you think? >> that's what it takes. one of the things we learned last night, steve, is that cand

, that did not work out for them tonight. and ken cuccinelli did not win. joining us now is steve kornacki, the host of "up with steve kornacki." thank you for being here. interesting to look at turnout numbers, specifically in northern virginia. we saw an elector in virginia that looked much more like 2012 than the last time they elected a governor in 2009. >> what we saw play out tonight in virginia in a way was a repeat of election night in virginia in 2012, where in 2012, romney was leading in the state and all the returns that were publicly out there, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, those big four sort of -- those counties you talk about, loudon county, prince william, fairfax county, right outside arlington county, right outside of washington, d.c., in fairfax in particular, that's correct. those numbers from fairfax ended up being overwhelming for terry mcauliffe and that's where the late surge came from. i'm looking at that map tonight, and i'm looking at the 2012 map and it is sort of the same story. >> looking at the new jersey results, obviously no surprise that chris christie was able to ge
yesterday across the board. just 23 points in the dow jones industrial average. steve sedgwick live for us in london. good morning, steve. >> hey, good to see you today. the dow and s&p were up a smidgen, but we saw falling heavily. the long-running s.e.c. saga looks to be drawing to an end. steven cohen's group has pled guilty to a host of charges. it will pay fines and forfeitures around $1.8 billion and will no longer manage money for outsiders. the war of words, though, between the u.s. attorney in manhattan and mr. cohen goes on. he's basically saying it was a handful of men who pleaded guilty and whose conduct gave rise to sac's liability. the manhattan attorney for his part says substantial and pervasive insider trading was going on on a scale without preceden precedence. the war of words continues. >> it's a huge number, but no individual guilt. on twitter, a pew research center poll looked at not only how we use twitter, but who uses twitter, and it's pretty interesting. >> yeah, it is. and it's very interesting for the likes of you, who is a news man who tweets as well. 18 to 29-

tonight. joining us is steve carnaky. we saw an electorate in virginia that looked much more like 20 12 than in 2009. >> what we saw play out tonight in virginia was a repeat of election night in virginia in 2012, where in 2012, romney was leading in the state in all the returns that were out there, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00. it's those big counties, like loudoun, prince william, fairfax county, arlington, right outside of washington, d.c., fairfax in particular, those numbers from fairfax ended up being overwhelming for terry mccullough. that's where the late surge came from. i'm looking at that map and looking at the 2012 map, and it's the same story. >> looking at the new jersey results, there's no surprise that chris christie was able to get his second term. i was surprised how bluntly he was campaigning for president on the night he got elected. looking at those results, is there anything that was surprising or anything that's important there? >> i think what you're saying is true. base think this is a speech they started writing about a year ago. the democratic party did not invest in thi
yesterday. it's more steve lord. >> how do you describe the angle of pi head? >> contorted and your hair is parted down the middle. >> looks like a young raymond burr. >> he does. >> today is election day. we have important elections here. >> decision day in two states. voters selecting their next governor. both races could set the tone for the 2014 midterms and the 2016 presidential race. we'll start in virginia where the latest quinnipiac poll shows terry mcauliffe ahead of ken cuccinelli by six points. last month it was 12. cuccinelli said he's optimistic about pulling off the upset. senator marco rubio helped him deliver a final pitch putting the focus squarely on banl. >> i know tomorrow night the people of virginia will send a clear message to our country and the democratic party. >> absolutely. >> yeah! >> we don't want obama care. >> nope. >> we don't want more big government. >> no! >> i'm scared to death of what obama care is doing to virgin n virginians. terry mcauliffe is scared of what it's doing to him. [ cheers ] >> vice president joe biden hit the trail saying the electi
. 43% were for the incumbent governor there. with me now john feehery and steve mcmahon. it's so fascinating. but hillary clinton is a media star. she's a worldwide celebrity who's got no blemish on her, she comes into this thing still as the iconic figure to beat. around here the executive producer and i were trying to figure out numbers. we all thought that christie would lose to her about five or six. hillary's beating him in his own state right now. >> i remember when everyone thought it's going to be hillary clinton and rudy giuliani. remember that? i think it would be a huge boost for chris christie. he's proven he could win. >> close to hillary running with her in the exit polls. >> i think it makes him look very good. very blue state. and you know what? if he's going to be the favored son, i predict if he runs against hillary -- >> let me tell you something. we're the kitsds that snuck down around midnight to see what was going on. get this straight. we're the ones that look early. okay? your thoughts. >> here's what's interesting. he's a favored son in new jersey. she's
cyclist who would remember the michael dukakis presidential election to the day is steve cornacki. your team today, even supplied dukakis' favorite pizza for lunch, olive pizza. >> very greek type of pizza right there. that's right. >> there's still some left actually. >> abby, i think it's italian. >> it might be. >> they even reenacted the tank episode. >> that was my background in college. i had a film/television major -- i'm a director at heart. we rented out the sound stage and there was a $2 million production. but it was worth it. >> it captured -- >> everybody says what i really want to do is direct. you too? >> yeah. six second vines. >> it's your calling. >> it was amazing. clearly there are still echos of the dukakis campaign in the democratic party. something i talk about a lot. most of the talk about the weak republican party and how it can't get its act together. political parties grow in these cycles, from 1968 to 1992 there were really only four years of a democrat in the white house. that's just one out of six terms with president carter at the helm. and wasn't until an
steve king has done it again. this time he's concluded that president bush was right after all about iraq trying to get yellow cake uranium from africa. but bush didn't know it. this is "hardball," the place for politics. american express credit card, every purchase earns you 2% cash back, which is deposited in your fidelity account. is that it? actually... there's no annual fee and no limits on rewards. and with the fidelity cash management account debit card, you get reimbursed for all atm fees. is that it? oh, this guy, too. turn more of the money you spend into money you invest. it's everyday reinvesting for your personal economy. >>> news on the economic front. the economy added 204,000 jobs during the month of october. that's a lot more than economists expected. and especially considering the federal government was shut down for 16 days. still, the jobless rate ticked up to 7.3% likely because furloughed federal workers were counted as the unemployed. we'll be right back. from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart o
on "morning joe" this morning i thought was really interesting. republican strategist steve schmidt said something that i want to play and get your reaction. >> there's change elections and there's more of the same election. if you look at where we are right now, it looks like we're heading into a change election. and that gives the republican candidate, particularly if they're from outside of washington -- >> are you concerned that after eight years of president obama people will be looking for change and maybe looking for a fresh face and turn away from hillary. >> well, if they look for change they're going to look for hillary because the change will be electing a woman for the first time. but also an unbelievable candidate who's qualified to run and to govern. and i think that that's what voters are going to look for. there's a lot that's going to happen between now and 2016. so we all ought to be on the lookout. >> some of the questions in the last 24 hours have asked if hillary clinton is progressive enough. questions were raised after a piece in the new republic highlighted elizab
152 points. steve, good morning. >> it was one of those head scratching days. was it down because of earnings or because we have come so far or gdp figures were better than some expected which means we are likely to get it earlier rather than later. is it being pumped in by the feds? twitter, how do you deal with a sunt like twitter? 73% increase on the debut. up to $44, the valuation now is an eye watering $31 billion. they have 8% the revenues of facebook. elsewhere, credit rating went to aa. high unemployment is hurting the country's ability to make meaningful reforms on tax and structure issues. >> we talk about twit eanother darling stock. they are having more problems with tesla. >> yeah, the third fire in one of these tesla new sedans. the model s. the shares came off 7.5% yesterday. they came off 14%. people are nervous about this one because it's come so far. take a look at where it was trading one year ago. it was trading just under 30 bucks. stock is now trading, even with the force of the last two days at $139. it is up, year to date, 313%. >> depends on where you boug
if there is no other option simply to send a message to constituents and the white house. other democrats like steve cohen had been blunter, calling the controversy over keeping existing plans the last straw. this is what cohen told nbc news. sometimes they, referring to the white house, take us for granted. we are fighting for this. they need to come up with something where many of us will support the upton bill. a senior house democratic staffer estimated to politico that the number could be anywhere from 20, the usual, when there is conservative democrats who vote to 100 depending on the circumstances. it's clear whether the white house likes it or not, they will have to let democrats in congress make the fix. they can't do it themselves. the trust is just not there. democrats need their pound of flesh on this one. democrats are telling the white house this. we need to be on the record and registering anger with how the roll out has gone so far. we have been with the white house and we are on the ballot next year, not president obama. don't be surprised if the white house endorses something. mayb
not win. joining us now is steve kerr bernake. >> the turnout numbers specifically in northern virginia, we saw an electorate that looked much more like 2012 than it did the last time they elected a governor in 2009. >> what we saw in virginia was a repeat of election night in virginia in 2012. in 2012, romney was leading at 8:00, 9:00, 10:00. it was those counties, loudon county, prince william, of fairfax county, arlington county right outside of washington d.c. . that is correct. those numbers from fairfax were overwhelmingly for terry mcauliffe. that is where it came from. in looking at that malik tonight, that is the same story. >> looking at the new jersey results, it's no surprise that chris christie was able to get his second term as governor of new jersey. i was surprised by how bluntly he was campaigning for president on the night that he got reelected. the results in down ballot and everything else, is there anything that was surprising? >> what you are saying is true. it was clear a year ago that he would have an easy time because the democratic party did not invest. the dem
says of course they are a great excuse to have gummies. >> we had some votes for flint stones. steve, i have grandparents who are 77 and 90 and never took vitamins. should i start now? you want to see our news block i'll push it out on facebook and twitter right after the show. "morning joe" starts right now. >>> chris christie appeared on all four sunday shows to talk about how much he didn't want to talk about the presidential race. >> governor, how interested are you in running for president in 2016? >> well, chris, what i'm interested in doing is be the governor of new jersey. what i'm focused on is doing my job in new jersey. time governor of new jersey. for me i'm the governor of new jersey and my job is to run the state of new jersey. >> yes he's just the governor of new jersey. that's why he went on meet the jerry, fox news jersey sun, face the turnpike and this new jersey new jersey new jerseyopolis. >> good morning, everyone, it's tuesday, november 12th. whoa, that would be pub day. he and mecham right there start things off at columbia last night. how did that go? >> they are
'm dressed this halloween as steve kornacki. we've got lots of politics tonight, starting at the white house, where you might have noticed, it's been something of a rough couple of weeks for the president. with the rocky rollout of his signature health reform law dominating the news, the political toll is real and it is getting worse. and nowhere is the damage more apparent than in the latest polling from nbc news, where president obama's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 42%. that is a five-point drop from just earlier this month. these numbers, as bad as they are, don't necessarily exist in a vacuum. there's a lot more complexity to the current political environment, which in many ways is the story of american politics in the tea party era. >> let's talk about the president. >> between syria, between the shutdown, between obama care, how are his approval numbers stacking up? >> record lows. >> the president's approval rating dropped five points. >> at an all-time low. >> is this more than just the second-term curse? >> if he goes below where he is right now, he's going to be
is democrat from new york congressman steve israel. he chairs the democratic congressional campaign committee. congressman, it's your job to help democrats get elected. how important will the minimum wage issue be for your candidates? >> thank you for having me on and the answer to your question is it's going to be critically important. there's a choice to be made in every election. and so people can choose republicans who are willing to spend $40 billion every ten years to enrich the richest oil companies on earth. or they can choose to elect democrats who are going to increase the minimum wage. the last time it was increased was in 2007. it's $7.25 an hour. that equates to about $15,000 a year which is $3,000 less than the poverty level, reverend. it is not a minimum wage. it is a poverty wage. >> now, the last time it was raised in 2007, which was right after the 2006 midterm elections in which the democrats ran on raising the minimum wage and you picked up 30 seats. not only is it the right thing to do, it was politically wise. you picked up 30 seats and then went ahead and raised the min
is the real reason he appeared on fox news sunday. it reads, as an undergrad, steve spent a great deal of time studying the alternatives of universal health care. really? you mean, he's not a fan? occcurry isn't exactly what you would call a fair and balanced guest. then you've got this other dude on the right. turns out that cade joiner, well, he used to be the chairman of the georgia college republican party, how about that? that makes i guess you could say, two fair and balanced guests to talk about obama care? question mark? steve curry and cade joiner are republicans with agendas who have always hated the democrats and obama care from day one. this type of reporting is par for the course for fox news. i just want to make sure we all know it's even on the sunday show, where it's supposed to be all journalism. few weeks ago, sean hannity interviewed five people, count ep, five people with real stories about obama care, causing them tremendous harm. salon.com did some actual reporting on the real stories and it turns out obama care would have saved these people thousands of dollars if they e
about the launch of iphone. when steve jobs set up the big event. they had something put together with duct tape and wire. it was like -- he insisted on doing it live, steve jobs. he was pushing it through. it looked like the most ridiculous risk taking you could possibly have. so much riding on it. they could not believe it, the engineers, as they sat there in the audience that it worked for the live presentation. i think there was a kind of wishful thinking in this process like you know what, maybe the duct tape will hold and everybody at the lower levels is like i hope, i hope, i hope. it doesn't. now we're in a different stage of the process. now we under the mistakes that were made. now really it's a question of how quickly the administration can regain its competency and come in there and say now we know what the problems are. we can't keep fighting. it's not time to finger point and blame. it's time to be how do we get exchanges up and running efficiently so we get the effects we need from the amount of signups, get the actual system functioning. i think it's -- if i'm in t
